COLONIAL PARK -- A slow start doomed the Chambersburg girls basketball team in a 57-35 loss to Central Dauphin in a Mid Penn Commonwealth Division game Friday.

The Rams limited Chambersburg to just two points in the first quarter, while racking up 24 of their own, and went into halftime with a 32-11 lead.

"We got off to a very bad start," Chambersburg coach Barry Purvis said. "We only had two points in the first quarter and probably 10 turnovers; some were forced, some were sloppy. We are just not handling the ball well or making good decisions. It put us in a hole right off the bat."

Lindsay Embly led Chambersburg with 16 points, and went 5-for-7 from the free throw line. The Trojans made nine of 12 foul shots.

"We played hard on the defensive end, but when you turn the ball over that much we give them the too many easy opportunities," Purvis said.
